Using BIM enables structural engineers, detailers, and fabricators to improve multidiscipline coordination of structural design documentation, minimize errors, and streamline collaboration between teams. Integrated structural design software tools support the project delivery process from structural design and engineering to detailing, fabrication, and installation.
If you’re still using CAD for Steel or Concrete detailing, there’s a better way. 3D, model-based structural detailing software can help your firm improve structural design and detailing accuracy to streamline fabrication, offer new services to your clients, and produce shop drawings automatically.
The real power of BIM lies in its ability to connect teams across a project’s lifecycle to accelerate collaboration. Projects are delivered faster when better communication—accelerated with BIM processes—helps better connect structural designs to the final fabricated, structural model.
BIM is transforming how structural engineering firms are delivering projects, allowing them to create better design alternatives and perform structural analysis in less time using flexible, automated tools. The result is higher quality structural design.
Buro Happold used BIM to quickly develop, analyze and optimize advanced geometric designs for the stadium roof used in the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
